Bay Area Bike Share’s proposal will bring a ten-fold increase in the number of bikes, including 1,400 for Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville by Spring/Summer 2017.
These new bikes will be accessible to all in 30-minute time slots. You can purchase an annual membership online or get a 24-hour or 3-day membership from any station kiosk. Visit BayAreaBikeShare.com for more information. Each membership level gets you unlimited 30-minute bike rentals. Bikes can be picked up and dropped off at any bike share station.
Bike East Bay is advocating for a system that will serve all residents of the East Bay regardless of race, gender, class, or income. We’ve partnered up with TransForm to do education around what bike share is and how to use it, as well as to facilitate access for anyone who might be interested in joining.
Bike East Bay has worked extensively with Bay Area Bike Share to make the system accessible to low-income residents by providing reduced price memberships, ensuring the station locations make them available to all, and alternatives to paying by credit card.
